“Hmmmm….this feels REALLY good, Spuds!”

“This looks promising…another adventure!”

“Now we are both shed out, clean and ready for our
adventure, Augie!”

“Oh, look, Spuds! It’s Wrangler & Chasity! Oats
around…LOL!!”

“It’s Mirage and Francis, Augie…more oats…YAY!!!

Francis sure is PURDY, Augie!
“Still got that crush…eh, Spuds!”

“Nice to have Robin with us this time!” Are we going to get a trim?
It looks like Dean, Augie!”

“No, Spuds, maybe a bath at this Bath House?”
“This boardwalk is kinda tricky, Augie!”

“How about a haircut at the Barbershop, Spuds?”
“No, thank you, Augie! I had one last week!”

“Ah, what have we here, Spuds?
“Don’t ask, Augie! I think this is the Undertaker!”

“Oh, this is easy as pie, Augie!”
“Yeah, Yeah, Spuds!”

“Oats and a pat on the head is ALWAYS good, Augie!”
“I would agree, Spuds!”

“HMMM…sheet on the boardwalk, Augie!”

“No sweat, Spuds! We’re at the WILD ASS SALOON…
wanna drink, Spuds?”

“No? Well let’s just head around the corner then, Spuds!”

 “Under and around a hitch rail?…that’s new, Augie!”

“Time for the oats reward again, Spuds!”
“Hey, what about me, Augie?”

“Did you see the sign, Spuds? We are now leaving ASSPEN!”

“It was another GREAT ADVENTURE, Augie!
So many things to see!”

“Agreed! Too bad we have to go home now, Spuds!

“Oh, well! Jump right into the stall for more OATS, Augie!”

“Oats and a nap…sounds good, Spuds!”

“Augie, come with me while she’s not looking!”

 

“Now that's more like it--working at OUR level!”

“I really like it when she works at OUR level!”

 

“A few last-minute adjustments so everything fits us just right!”

“You have to be really still when she’s punching holes!”

 

“Leading as a team is easy if you’ve done your homework.”

“Leading as a team is easy if you have done your homework!”

 

“Hey, I wonder if WE could use one of those sticks to reach farther!”

“What’s with the stick?!”

 

“Hmm, “Walk on” is pretty much the same, even with all this stuff on us!”

“Walk on?…oh, I remember that!”

 

“Pick up your heels, Spuds, I think she wants us to go faster!”

“I think she wants us to pass her!”

 

“Not too fast, though… she wants us walking beside her here.”

“Oh, I get it…she wants us to walk beside her now!”

 

“Now we’re the leaders—all our hard work in training is finally paying off!”

“WOW! Cool! We get to be in front now!”

What do you suppose is happening today, Augie?”

“Yippee! It’s a 102 degrees and bath time!”

Baths with Billy Bad Ass are really fun, Spuds!”

“Excuse me, Augie! I need the hose for Spuds now.”

“Thanks, Augie, now the left front, please.”

“What a GOOD BOY! Thanks, Augie!”

“Now the right front, please!”

“You are so AWESOME, Augie!”

“Hey, Augie, why are YOU getting all the praise… and the oats?!”

“I dunno, Spuds, but this hairbrush sure feels good and it’s really getting out all that dead hair! Feels GREAT!”

“Aw, Spuds, were you feeling left out?!”

“Not really, Mom, just make sure I get some oats!”

“Okay, Spuds, let me have your leg and I’ll give you some oats!”

“Okay, Augie, now that your mane is done, let’s do the rest of you.”

“Hmmmm…this tastes pretty good on a hot day!”

“You are so adorable, Augie! Love your cutesy face!”

“Yeah, Yeah! Give it a rest, Mom! This is embarrassing!”

“Now for your teeth, Augie, smile pretty…

and the front leg…

“What a GOOD BOY!” Wanna drink, Augie?!”

“Sure, Mom, why not?!”

“Hey, Spuds, this is cool with you me and Billy Bad Ass!”

“Yeah, Augie, not too bad and we dry pretty quickly.

Here comes the Baby oil and fly spray!”

“We’re getting pretty good at the gates, eh, Augie?!”

“When you get oats for doing it right, it’s even better yet, Spuds!”

“Of course, she WOULD throw us a curve! That is one HUMUNGOUS truck, Augie! Are you sure we’re okay?”

“Of course, we are! She would never ask us to do anything that would hurt us! She LOVES US!”

“I suppose you’re right, Augie!”

“Hi, Guys! How are you all doing?”

“I know they want to go with us, Augie!”

“It’s another meet-the-heavy-equipment day, Spuds!”

“Yeah, first the backhoe and now the skidsteer, Spuds!”

“Oh, check this out, Spuds, SUPER FUN!”

“Hey, Augie, wait for me! Yee Haw!”

“Don’t we all look like another statue, Spuds?!”

“YUP, but it’s time to go, Augie! Whoopee!”

“You take the high road and I’ll take the low road, and I’ll get there before you, Augie!”

“You can’t be King of the Mountain without going HIGH, Spuds!”

“AND, you learn to pick your way CAREFULLY, Spuds!”

“I’d rather be jumping, Augie! It’s MUCH MORE FUN!”

“I can jump, too, Spuds, and HIGHER than you!”

“Each to his own… knock yourself out, Augie!”

“I am a true energy-conserver, Augie!”

“And maybe a bit lazy, eh Spuds! Come on! This  one’s easy, Spuds!”

“I was just waiting for you to get out of the way… so I could jump!”

“Yeah! Yeah! Sure you were, Spuds! “I’m not afraid, Augie!”

“Walking in sync is harder than people might think, eh, Spuds?!”

“Yeah… and so is posing for the pictures she wants!”

“It’s easy when you have core strength and flexibility, Spuds! Then you can BOTH get what you want!”

“Sure is smoky out here from the fires, Augie!”

“Yeah, but it’s nice to be out for another adventure!”

“OH, what’s she doing now, Augie?!”

“I think we are supposed to follow, Spuds… IN SYNC!”

“Isn’t SHE being lazy now, Augie?!”

“Not really, Spuds… she’s getting older! So, we need to be cooperative… so we can have more ADVENTURES!”

Augie and Spuds always look forward to their adventures and this would be no exception!

“Oh WOW! Check this out, Spuds!”

Another Augie and Spuds Adventure: Old Western Town Project

0

3-26-20

Augie and Spuds have been very patient with me for the past year when I did not have time to do anything but grooming once a week and turnout. They were so thrilled to be able to go on another ADVENTURE! Today, we are going to inspect a new project, the false-front town of ASSPEN!

We thought this would be a really nice way to spruce up the big, brown boring wall behind the Lucky Three Eclipse statue and make things even more interesting for our tours! Going through the construction zone gives them a chance to practice their good manners and earn their rewards! Although, Spuds is in the lead out of the barn, he prefers it when Augie leads over and through obstacles.

Whatever works best… it’s always negotiable!

“Hey, Augie! What’s this?!”

“I don’t know, Spuds. It looks very interesting though.”

Augie surveys the situation, “Hmmm…a new obstacle course, maybe?!”

“I’m not sure about this, Augie!”

“It’s really easy, Spuds…and kind of fun!”

“Hey, Boys! Welcome to ASSPEN Town!”

“Here’s the Burro Bank, the ASSPEN Sheriff’s Office & Jail, the Chaney Church

and the Okie Dokey Undertaker

“And concrete, Augie!”

“This must be the boardwalk sidewalk, eh Augie?!”

“Yup, but no boards yet! It would be easier with boards!”

“This is the best part, Spuds!”

“You bet! It’s good to be good!”

“And here’s the Half-Ass General Store, L.J.’s Barber Shop and the Crazy Ass Saloon!”

“It’s a little tight going between the boards and the fence, eh, Augie?!”

“No sweat, Spuds! Just pay attention to where you are going!”

“Did she build all this just for US, Augie?!”

“No, Spuds, I think it is for the people that come for tours, but we get to check it out first.”

“Well, it sure makes for a fun obstacle course, Augie!”

“It sure does and it’s great to be able to get out for a walk!”

“Now we have to pose for the camera, Spuds! Try to look nice!”

“Do I really have to?!!!

“Thanks, Mom! That was fun!!!”

“Yeah, Augie, I like the oats and the ‘snuggles’ afterwards best!”

“I always like our BIG adventures, Spuds!”

“Me, too, Augie!

Another Augie and Spuds Adventure: Shenanigans in the Hayfields

0

6-6-18

Do you need some help with the lead ropes?
  

The saddle mules are headed for turnout. Where do you think we are going, Spuds?

Looks like we’re headed for the hayfield, Augie!

Looks like you were right, Spuds!
Isn’t it beautiful, Augie?!

What is that big yellow thing, Augie?!
That’s Chad, Spuds…oh, you mean the swather?!

How do you do, Augie? Now smile for the picture!

How do you do, Spuds? Not so sure?

WOW! That big thing sure makes a lot of noise!

Now where are we going, Augie?!

These are some really deep windrows!

And some really tall grass is growing in the jump course, Augie!

Boy, I’ll say it’s tall, Spuds! I can’t see a thing! Where are we going?

Spuds, Augie, Are you guys into having a picnic out here?

You bet! This is really cool!

Smile for the camera, Boys!

We are very happy with you, Mini Momma, aren’t we Spuds?!

I wuv you, too, Mini Momma!

And I love you both!  What a grand picnic!

What’s New with Roll? Spring Work in the Hourglass Pattern

0

3-28-18

Roll did exceptionally well today! He was also happy that he got to work out with his little buddies, Augie and Spuds. His body is beginning to get toned up again and he is starting to shed off his winter coat.

I did a quick pass with the hairbrush and then the vacuum cleaner. Last was Johnson’s Baby Oil in his mane and tail. I noticed right away during the grooming process that he was finally put weight on his right hind foot again.

On the way to the arena, I led Roll and Steve led Augie and Spuds.

Roll executed the gate perfectly as he always has. There is really something to be said for GATE TRAINING! With routine practice, they always know exactly what is expected and respond accordingly…no fussing at all.

Roll got his turn in the hourglass pattern first and did amazingly well while Augie and Spuds waited patiently at the fence.

I never had to physically move a foot with any tugs on the rope. He responded 100% to the verbal commands to correct his stance when he was in a full stop and fully weighted all four feet this time when he was asked to do so.

To fully weight the foot in the arena, he had to push the sand down. Sometimes I asked him to do it and sometimes I did not. With the ringbone and side bones in three feet, I really did not expect him to come back to full balance, but he did! What a great surprise!

After a halt on centerline, he followed me obediently to the fence with the lead rope slung over his neck.

When I went to retrieve him he was sideways to the fence, but he moved over so I could release him from the fence on my hand signal alone.

Roll executed the gate perfectly again on the way out…

…then we proceeded down the road and back to the Tack Barn. What a guy!!!

Another Augie and Spuds Adventure: Ground Drive Hourglass Pattern with Roll

1

“This vacuum sure feel good, Spuds!”

“Yeah, Augie, but why is Roll here with us?”

“Not sure, Spuds, but she’s putting on our driving gear.

We haven’t done that in a very long time! Can you tell where we are going?””

“Not really! I can see underneath, but Roll still makes a better door than a window! Is he going with us?!”

“It looks more like we are going with HIM, Spuds!”

 “Oh look, Spuds! It’s the hourglass pattern! It must be ground driving today!”

She just got done leading Roll through the pattern and now you get to ground drive the pattern. Why do I have to go last?!

“Because that’s just the way it is, Augie! Just stay cool and chill while we do this thing in sync. I love to see if she can match my tiny steps!”

“One…two…three…four. She’s doing pretty good, Augie!”

Finally, it’s MY turn now, Spuds…one…two…three…four!”

“You watch, Spuds! I’m putting my whole body into it”

“Apparently she liked it! That was really fun and EASY!”

“Ah Gee, Spuds, do we have to go back already!”

“I don’t know about you, Augie, but I’m ready for supper!”

“You’re always ready for supper. That’s why you are so PORTLY, PUDS!”
